The men who have furnished me with my greatest inspiration have not been men of wealth, but men of deeds.
James Cash Penney
Each thread of life that you leave, will spin around your deeds and dictate your needs.
To do good is difficult. One who does good first does something hard to do. I have done many good deeds, and, if my sons, grandsons and their descendants up to the end of the world act in like manner, they too will do much good. But whoever amongst them neglects this, they will do evil. Truly, it is easy to do evil.
Good actions ennoble us, and we are the sons of our deeds.
Miguel de Cervantes
Our acts make or mar us, we are the children of our own deeds.
Great acts are made up of small deeds.
Success has a great tendency to conceal and throw a veil over the evil deeds of men.
Surely if living creatures saw the results of all their evil deeds, they would turn away from them in disgust. But selfhood blinds them, and they cling to their obnoxious desires. They crave pleasure for themselves and they cause pain to others; when death destroys their individuality, they find no peace; their thirst for existence abides and their selfhood reappears in new births. Thus they continue to move in the coil and can find no escape from the hell of their own making.
We must make an issue, create an event, and establish a national position for ourselves: and never may expect to be respected as men and women, until we have undertaken some fearless, bold, and adventurous deeds of daring . . .
History is the chronicle of divorces between creed and deed.
Traditional history appears to be the defacto recognition of every evil deed that failed to be stopped or eliminated.
Dagobert D. Runes
. . .It is the Law that while Evil, unopposed, may accomplish terrible deeds, the power of Good can never be overthrown when opposed to Evil. . .
L. Frank Baum
